GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD)- Taste of Hope is coming up next week, and today, we have one of the organizers, Shawn Kohlhaas, along with chef Jessica Ann Tyson from The Candied Yam.

This year’s group of competing chefs promises to deliver a wide array of dishes that guests can sample and then vote for their favorites. At the end of the event, guests will witness a chef being crowned Top Chef of The Year! There will also be craft cocktails and a live and silent auction filled with one-of-a-kind culinary and travel experiences.
